Snoop Dogg's son has been offered a scholarship to UCLA! The rapper ought to be bursting with pride, but as we've seen before, there's likely controversy to follow such an accomplishment.

Snoop Dogg & sonLife is good for the sons of world-famous rappers. Snoop Dogg's son, Cordell Broadus, has been offered a scholarship to UCLA -- much like Sean "Diddy" Combs' son Justin was earlier this year!

Breaking the news Snoop Dogg's son may be headed to play football out west, high school coach Ryan Maine tweeted Monday, "BRAHMA RECRUITING NEWS: WR Cordell Broadus (2015) received his first offer from UCLA."

Cordell Broadus, pictured here with his famous father, just completed his freshman year of high school and won't graduate until 2015. "We're expecting him to really lead us the next three years," coach Maine told ESPNLA of the 185 pound wide receiver and defensive back. "Hopefully [our athletes] get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team."

Unfortunately, the offering of a scholarship to Snoop Dogg's son may not be a wholly joyous occasion. Recently Diddy and his family were the target of public backlash over Justin Combs receiving a full ride to UCLA. Many argued that the funds ought to be given to other students -- like those not lucky enough to have millionaire rap-mogul parents -- than to Combs.

Referencing Justin Combs' experience, one Twitter user wrote Monday, "hope ppl don't act like they did with Justin," while another challenged, "Anyone got something to say?"

It was another person, however, that echoed our reaction to Snoop Dogg's son receiving the offer: "Kinda disappointed his last name isn't Dogg."

Congratulations to Cordell Broadus on the UCLA offer. Your father -- real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. -- ought to be downright proud of his pup!

Do you think Snoop Dogg's son should take a scholarship like Diddy's did?
